    The Sophomore Spark Training Program

    Pay it Forward After We Get You Paid. The Way it Should Be.

    Exclusively for Sophomore Spring

    Unlimited 1:1 Mentorship

    Member for Life

    Stronger Together

    Become a Top 1% Applicant

    Accessible for All Students

    Our program brings together ambitious sophomores from the Class of 2025 in a 10 Weeks organized program that makes recruiting for investment banking a fun and interactive experience. From landing stepping-stone internships to mastering technical interview concepts, we know sophomore year recruiting better than anyone — and we deliver exceptional results for our students.

    One-size doesn’t fit all when it comes to Investment Banking recruiting, and we supplement our group programming with unlimited 1:1 mentorship. Our mentors have gone through the recruiting process themselves, learned the best strategies for getting the most offers and are here to pass down their knowledge to you. They’ll be available whenever you need them.

    And the program doesn’t end after the Sophomore Spark — once you’re a part of TBO, you’re a member for life. We’ve got your back for as long as you’re recruiting — plus, get personalized career support through your junior year internship & even after you hit the desk as an analyst. Tap into the network from your class & previous TBO classes at critical points throughout your career.

    Our group training curriculum accelerates student mastery of the recruiting process with an engaging curriculum, while helping you build meaningful connections.

    • 1. In-Person networking events & fun social activities in New York City.
    • 2. Interactive workshops with incredible guest speakers.
    • 3. Group competitions and prizes like gift cards, Madison Square Garden tickets, and more!
    • 4. Teams with mentors to keep you accountable & provide you a support system.

    Our curriculum covers every aspect of investment banking recruiting to ensure our students receive offers during their sophomore spring semester.

    • 1. End-to-End Application preparation including Resume, Cover Letter, and LinkedIn.
    • 2. Elite Networking Process including access to our proprietary strategies, tools, & network.
    • 3. Fast-tracked authority over all IB and interview concepts, from behavioral to technical.
    • 4. Negotiating with offers & interview timelines, and dominating the summer internship.

    Over 90% of our students receive offers after completing the curriculum in the Sophomore Spark.

    Here’s why so many students apply for a spot in the Sophomore Spark each year:

    Our students pay an average of 5% of their first-year salary only after they’re earning income from elite 6-figure careers on Wall Street. If we can’t help them land an elite 6-figure job, they remain in the TBO family without having to pay anything at all. It’s a win-win scenario for the students we invite to our program. Then, we use payments from our previous class of bankers to fund the Sophomore Spark for the following class of underprivileged students.

    Together, we can change the culture on Wall Street, and give more deserving students a chance to make their dreams come true.
